One problem in comparing the years ( 68-69) is the relatively few shows we have for 68 , where we have lots of 69 . I might take the first 3rd of 69, for the wonderful Dark Stars alone , and I think I prefer the Other One's in this period . Mostly of the other material they have in common I prefer 68, for all the reasons you do .
One could argue that the pre-Working Man's, psychedelic , band was "formative",
Somewhere in late 69, you start to get the band that would continue to 95 ; but it is essential . Note that All the post Jerry bands that PHil has been involved with (inc. Furthur) there is much more emphasis on this "early" stuff . They may have become better song writers, instrumentalist, but in some ways they never toped the explosive joy of The Eleven " My 2 cents .

Yup; I'd even suggest minor editing to wit:

"...but they never toped the explosive joy of The Eleven. My buck an a quarter"
